    Default Searchable Chinese version

    The CU5X works perfectly with search and export function. This is the greatest thing about BW! Thanks all BW staff for your labor.

    I created my own Chinese new version for personal use also. It looks and reads fine. However, I can't make it searchable and exportable. Is there something I need to do to make it searchable/exportable?

    Please help! Thanks!

    The Chinese new version is included in BW10 as CNV5 and CNVS. So you do not have to make your own user version of it.

    Default Is there a teaching demonstration or teaching video?

    Excuse me, how do you operate the search function in the Chinese version CU5 in BibleWorks10 ?

    If you right-click on a character in the CU5 text and choose "Search on word" from the list, BibleWorks will find every instance of that character. Since most words contain multiple characters, in the CU5 text highlight the word (multiple characters) which you want to search, then right click on the highlighted text, and choose "Search for phrase." I do not know any way to search for Chinese words by typing in the Search Window. It is not set up for a Chinese keyboard.

    Great work. It would even be greater if it's "searchable and exportable".

    The Chinese Versions were searchable before. We can type Chinese characters following the dot [.] for search.
    I'm not sure what happened. Now it has bugs.

    For instance,
    1. Search for "以" (yi, the 1 first character in the Chinese translation of "Immanuel") takes a long long time. But the result is correct.

    2. Search for "神" (Shen, God) returns results instantly. But there is no highlighting.

    3. Searching for "亚" (ya, the first character in the Chinese translation of "Adam" or "Abraham" etc.)results an error.

    I am running BW9 in Windows 7. I have no problem with searching. Inputting (by typing directly or by Copy & Paste) Chinese characters in the Search Window yields result correctly and instantaneously. So, BW10 might have a bug.

    Martin, instead of typing Chinese directly, have you tried C&P a character into the Search Window. Also, you can try Mark's suggestion and see if that works for you. At least this could be a temporary workaround.

    The Windows version works fine (BW10 on Win10). The Mac version is buggy.
    Mark's suggestion has the same result.
